Food Composition

Knowledge about food composition is essential to understand all aspects of nutrition. A healthy and balanced diet must take into account the nutritional values of foods. In addition, this data is important for food producers to create foods that contribute to the population’s health.

The food database offers the possibility of querying the main nutrients of foods from different nutritional composition tables.

How does it work?

To make the query, you must select the country table of interest and then include the name of the food you wish to consult. Clicking on "Search" will list those foods that meet the indicated criteria. If you click on the name of your interest, you will access the food file where you can consult the values of the main nutrients per 100 grams of food in net weight.
